Boy struck by SUV in Deerfield Beach

Rescue crews rushed a boy to the hospital after, officials said, he was struck by an SUV in Deerfield Beach, but witnesses said the driver of the vehicle became a victim herself.

Neallie Junior Saxon III, who would have turned 2 on December 12, was struck by a maroon 2007 Hundai Santa Fe at about 4:45 p.m. Sunday.

Authorities say 22-month-old Neallie Junior Saxon III was playing with other children in a Deerfield Beach neighborhood when he chased a ball into the street.

The driver, BSO said, stayed at the scene of crash. An SUV struck Saxon, knocking him to the pavement.

It was unlikely he would have been visible to the driver who may have been distracted by the other children in the street, the sheriff's office said.

Police said the woman was unaware she hit Neallie and kept driving.

When she braked at a nearby stop sign, several unidentified people, believed to be related to the mortally injured toddler, confronted her, pulled her from the SUV and proceeded to beat her.

BSO said she was treated at a local hospital for fractures to her face and head.

Neallie was airlifted to Broward Health Medical Center just after 5 p.m. on Sunday. Traffic Homicide Investigation detectives are investigating.

Caroline Chery, Neallie's grandmother, told WPLG that the family returned home from church Sunday afternoon and was getting ready to celebrate her 10-year-old grandson's birthday.
